Psychedelic Psychotherapy and Psychedelic Psychotherapist
The skillful use of psychedelics in conjunction with psychotherapy by a licensed or registered psychotherapist, psychologist or other mental health professional. Sessions might be psycholytic in nature and often have a clinical purpose, for example, for the treatment of trauma/PTSD, depression, anxiety, etc. This is the most common term being used in the field, and specifically denotes a base credentialing within a clinical/medical framework and additional psychedelic training.
Psychedelic Therapy and Psychedelic Integration
Psychedelic Therapy is a specific multi-paradigm approach defined by the Medicinal Mindfulness training program and includes working with cannabis and psychotherapeutic/clinical elements and assessments, but also mindfulness practices, ceremony & ritual, somatic approaches, spiritual orientations, and within an energetic/transpersonal paradigm. Psychedelic Therapy can also be used for the treatment of clinical disorders, but is a full body/soul holistic practice that is not limited to the psychotherapy/clinical/medical model. While not necessarily named “Psychedelic Therapy,” this modality conforms with how most skilled/experienced/ethical “underground” psychedelic practitioners work. It is currently being developed into a credentialing program by Medicinal Mindfulness as an alternative to the clinical/medical credentialing paradigm. Sessions may include music and periods of the client turning inward and the therapist “holding space.” The experience may be similar to MDMA & Psilocybin Psychedelic Therapy sessions, but may also include higher doses and stronger psychedelics (N,N-DMT, 5-meo-DMT, Ayahuasca analogs, etc) in some therapeutic environments. Medicinal Mindfulness works only with cannabis and ketamine in these sessions. Appropriate for individuals, couples and small groups.
Psychotherapy & Psychedelic Consultation
Transformational healing experiences are rarely easy, and even profoundly positive shifts in life may be difficult to navigate or fully engage without support. Medicinal Mindfulness is a cannabis-friendly and psychedelic informed psychotherapy clinic that provides our clients with evidenced-based clinical support, somatic trauma resolution therapy, art therapy and integration support.
We are also available to answer questions about safe and skillful use practices regarding psychedelics, cannabis, and microdosing. Trained Medicinal Mindfulness therapists are also available to consult families who are currently experiencing a psychedelic-induced crisis.
Opportunities, difficulties, questions and general life situations on the medicine path can be quite complicated, and sometimes require an holistic approach to adequately address any concerns. Humans are complex, multidimensional creatures. We deserve to be treated as such
